Washington has the cheapest average per-capita cost of all 50 states, according to a new report by a national food and beverage think tank.
But even if you look at only the most expensive states, the difference is striking.
Washington ranks first with an average price of $0.10 per meal.
That’s more than double the national average of $1.19 per meal, according a report by the nonprofit Food & Water Watch.
The average cost per capita for all states, however, is $1,829 per year.
That compares to a national average that’s $2,056.
The median household income in Washington is $46,865.
